raquel welch as a roller girl is pretty much the most amazing thing i’ve seen this week.

  1. I played roller derby for 5 years with the Los Angeles Derby Dolls and I always wished that our uniforms were more like Raquel Welch’s in Kansas City Bomber. I really love the last photograph where it looks like she’s wearing pajamas. I also dig the knee pads sewn into the pants. totally unrealistic, but cute. Great post, again!

    Do you mind if I repost this to my blog?
